Sweet 16 Soccer Ball

Happy Sweet 16th to Kailie.  She is a goalie on her soccer team and when she turned 16, a soccer ball with goals was the perfect cake for her.  The ball is chocolate cake, covered in buttercream and then fondant.  A soccer pattern was a bit of a challenge, but was thrilled with the results and so was I.  The goal posts are made of gumpaste and royal icing makes the netting.  The cake serves 15 and there was also a 1 1/4 inch layer of rice crispy treats on the bottom to help support the cake.  The crispy treats are a nice bonus and also completely edible.
